Skirt Steak Tacos

What Is Skirt Steak?

Skirt steak is a popular cut from the cow’s lower belly area, right between the brisket and flank. It comes from the “plate” section and is sold in long, flat pieces. It’s not particularly tender, with a high amount of connective tissue. The lack of movement and effort coming from that area means it’s also more flavorful. Skirt steak is perfect for grilling and searing over high heat.

Marinate the steak

Mix the marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Add the steak and stir. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Marinate it for 1-4 hours.

Cook the steak

Add oil to a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak (without excess juices). Cook until browned. Remove from heat.

Heat the tortillas

Place the tortillas in a griddle over medium-low heat. Heat them until warm and bendy. 

Assemble and Enjoy!

Place steak in the center of each tortilla. Add 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite toppings. Serve immediately and enjoy.
